Want to know more about this parador

The Parador de Benavente stands at one of the most important confluences of communications routes in Spain, a crossroads between the northern and southern parts of the peninsula, and where various pilgrimage routes to Santiago pause to take a breather. The hotel is located on the site of an old castle, of which Caracol Tower has been preserved. You will be fascinated by the beauty of the tower's exterior and the spectacular Mudejar coffered ceiling inside. In the other rooms, tapestries, wrought iron lamps, woodwork and Castilian brick will make you feel almost as if you were on a film set. Our function rooms are fully equipped to handle your social events, and the lovely gardens that surround the Parador are ideal for a stroll.

Situated at one of the most important confluences of communications routes in Spain; its enviable location in the northwestern part of the peninsula has made it an important crossroads throughout history. It lies on various pilgrimage routes to Santiago de Compostela: the Vía de la Plata (Silver Route), Camino de Oriente (Eastern Asturias Route), Valladolid Route, Tera Valley Route and Asturias Route.

The venue for the legislative assembly in 1176, the Parador de Turismo de Benavente is located on the site of the former castle/palace of the counts of Benavente. Construction of the building began in the 12th century and it was subsequently expanded by successive occupants in the 13th, 14th and 15th centuries. 

The hotel is connected to the Renaissance-style Caracol Tower, the only part of the former structure to be preserved. It is also next to La Mota Gardens, Benavente's most important green space, with excellent views of the Tera and Órbigo river valleys.

The tower features a magnificent Mudejar coffered ceiling and a period bar.
